The Legion Phone Duel 2 was just announced officially across Europe in an online press event video on Thursday 8 April. I know many of you have been super excited about this one! What do you think of the specs and features? 😎
I'll collect more information about this device below, and if you want to check it out in the lenovo.com shop, see below for direct links:
The Legion Phone Duel 2 is the next step in mobile gaming evolution. It features Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 5G mobile platform, and the twin-turbo fan cooling system that ensures peak performance. A strong battery that charges quickly will keep you gaming all day, while Octa-Trigger input and Dual HaptiX feedback give a console controller feel for better controls, and a high-res camera lets you create content while you play.
Revolutionary gaming design
The Legion Phone Duel 2's exclusive ATA 2.0 (Advanced Technology Architecture) is designed to provide ultimate cooling and sustained performance for the best gaming experience by placing the powerful Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 888 5G Mobile Platform in the center of the smartphone’s design. And eight virtual keys greatly improve in-game controllability to make sure gamers are always a click ahead of the competition.
One complete thermal system
The Legion Phone Duel 2's cooling system is extremely effective at removing heat. It combines an integrated twin turbo-fan cooling system that forces airflow through a copper wind-tunnel. This tunnel is connected to a large vapor chamber via two copper pillars, increasing thermal transfer performance. With a 30% thermal efficiency improvement compared the last generation, the difference between intake and exhaust air can be up to 22°C / 71.6°F.
Lightning fast hardware
The Legion Phone Duel 2 pairs the all-powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 888 5G mobile platform, up to 16GB LPDDR5 memory and 512 UFS3.1 storage for high-octane gaming. Plus playing online is fast and lag-free with 5G and WiFi 6 connectivity to create the ultimate mobile gaming platform.
Console-style controls in a mobile package
Octa-Trigger gives you a virtual key array (4 x shoulder ultrasonic, 2 x rear capacitance, and 2 x display force-touch) in a natural console-style grip, giving gamers the freedom to customize key mapping that suits their play styles. This fast and easy control gives you the control you need to reach the top.
Dominate the lobby & feel every shot
Dual HaptiX provides incredibly precise and exquisite touch feedback for the most immersive in-game experience available on a mobile device. Legion provides developers three easy methods to bring haptic feedback into their games (Legion SDK, TGPA, and RichTap). Dual HaptiX is capable of syncing with different gaming events, bringing that next layer of immersive feeling into your hands.
Bigger power, safer batteries
Dual batteries with 90W charging via a USB -C port will hit a 100% charge in just 30 minutes. Further, the Phalanx Battery Protection system provides optimal-charging speeds, bypass mode and overcharge prevention—ensuring longer life, lower temperatures, and safer charging. Even after 1,200 full charge cycles this battery can still offer up to 85% of its max capacity.
A crystal-clear 44MP autofocus camera with an ultra-wide lens and incredible low-light performance lets gamers capture vibrant 4K video — while accurate background removal and a customizable animated avatar makes for prime content creation. Combined with an AI-enabled noise cancelling microphone, gamers can stream to their fans from anywhere. And to add to its content creating capabilities, the Legion Phone Duel 2 offers 64MP ultra-wide and 16MP extreme ultra-wide rear cameras that capture every detail in images, and can record up to 8K or HDR 10+ video.
A most immersive experience
The Legion Phone Duel 2 offers a 6.92″ AMOLED gaming display with 144Hz refresh rate and 660Hz touch reaction speed. This gives users the fastest in-game action experience. Further, professional-grade Delta E <0.5 color accuracy and HDR10+ produce perfect in-game visuals. Choose dual front-facing speakers with Dolby Atmos® for sound that flows through and around you or opt for low-latency Bluetooth® LE audio to use with true wireless headphones.
Legion Assistant lends a hand
Legion gamers can optimize their complete gaming experience using the Legion Assistant. Through an array of convenient settings it can optimize your complete gaming experience with its “Rampage” ultimate performance mode, turbo-fan mode, touch latency tweaks, virtual key assignments, real-time performance metrics, and other useful adjustments that get the most out of its epic hardware.
